The Los Angeles Lakers yesterday traded Ivica Zubac and Michael Beasley for Mike Muscala and in the process, opened up a roster spot in the process. Many people speculated with one name that can fill that roster spot.
According to numerous reports, Los Angeles will seriously consider signing Carmelo Anthony to a deal now that they have created a roster spot for themselves. Anthony hasn't played since November when he and the Houston Rockets parted ways.
Another player that the Lakers have an eye on is Markieff Morriss according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times .
Also, the Lakers have interest in signing forward Markieff Morris if he is healthy, according to one person.
Morris was acquired by the Pelicans on Thursday from the Washington Wizards, but he was waived later that day. Morris, who is in the final year of a contract that pays him $8.6 million, still has to clear waivers.
Morris hasn’t played in a game since Dec. 26. He was diagnosed with transient cervical neuropraxia, a spinal injury, in January.
The Lakers will look to fill that roster spot and it will be interesting to see which direction they will go.
